[ISEA98] Artists Statement: Kirsten Reynolds & Ashley Davies (Project Dark) – Excited by Gramophones

Artists Statement

Kirsten Reynolds and Ashley Davies manufacture 7″ singles made from vinyl, glass, hair and steel. Using multiple record players as instrumentation, artefacts from their catalogue are seduced into creating sounds characteristic of their nature. Excited by Gramophones is an intriguing and witty performance of alluring layers of serenity, serration and capricious rhythms combined to produce unique physically charged and sometimes explosive music. Live video projection shows the full textural detail of these unique artefact singles providing a visual and sonic feast.
